     The precise date of the organization of the United Presbyterian Cemetery of West Alexander is not definitely known. The earliest Presbytery records state that in the year 1793, "a supply of preaching was granted to the Associate Reformed Church of Three Ridges," the name by which it was known at that time. But from other records it may safely be considered as having had an existence some years prior to that date.

     The notes of the DAR said the condition of the cemetery was “deplorable. It was overgrown with briers and elder bushes, only one half the cemetery was reachable at all.” Their earliest grave was shown as June 21, 1807.
